Great for that lower back and ab workouts. Easy install/removable during workouts. Storing can be challenging (it's tall) but this thing really works GREAT!

Perhaps not as versatile as other attachments, but equally incredible! I've owned this attachment for quite a while and although it only comprises a small percentage of the total number of exercises I do, it's effect and efficiency can't be replicated with anything else. I use it mostly for weighted and unweighted back hyper extensions (hold a plate across your chest, arms criss-crossed), and weighted and unweighted oblique crunches (hold weight at either shoulder or hanging down. Only complaint? It's a tad cumbersome (necessary) but still incredible! 5 stars!

I was seriously looking at a Glute-ham developer even tho I don't really have the room for it. But I desperately needed equipment that strengthened hamstrings and glutes because of chronic lower back weakness. Then I saw this and it was the perfect solution and price because I have the SuperPro Bench. However, after just one use I was back on the website to buy the Cable Tower Seat so I can have my bench back. Swapping this attachment out is a tad cumbersome and I also have the Crunch Sit-up Attachment. I like to combine sets of back extensions and core work so having the Hyper be a stand-alone piece will be perfect. Completely immersed in the Ironmaster ecosystem!!

Hyperextensions have always been part of my lower back routine. When working out at home, I had been doing them on an exercise ball, which limited my range of motion. Since COVID hit I have built up my home gym and recently purchased the hyper core attachment for my Superbench PRO. With the PRO, the attachment needs to sit between the first and second notches, but that setup has proven to be completely stable, as advertised. The hyper core also works well with the built-in bench on my older IM950. I have had the hyper core for two months and its a fabulous addition! Far superior to the exercise ball. Rock solid. I love it.

Great accessory for Superbench/Superbench Pro owners. Yet another example of IronMasters ability to make a great product for the home gym owner. I would appreciate it however, if they eventually upgrade the padding to the denser version on the hybrid bench & SuperbenchPro for this & the preacher curl attachments.

I developed a herniated disc a few years back and my doctor recommended that I build up my core muscles as a way to help strengthen my back and reduce future back pain. When I saw that ironmaster finally restocked on this attachment I jumped on it right away. I picked this up from my local UPS store once it arrived and had it assembled within about 30 minutes. This is a high quality piece of equipment and I was immediately impressed by how it was pretty much identical to what I would find at my local gym. It is a little expensive but you get what you pay for.

Very Solid! As the attachments for the Super Bench are super solid and designed well, this hyper extension attachment is no exception. It is now my favorite attachment. I have a bad lower back I wanted something I can easily attach to exercise my lower back. I do not have the space for a stand alone hyper extension. This takes up very little space without sacrificing quality and functionality. Because of ironmaster attachments like this it's no wonder why I'm fully sold on the Ironmaster ecosystem.

Use this practically every day. This is one of the most effective pieces of home gym equipment I have, and to work the lower back and sides...it's terrific. Solid and very stable, I plug it into one of three super benches, swapping it out with the leg lift and dip and chin-up accessories. Really does work you out, and you can easily modify the exercise difficulty by varying how deeply you lean into or retract from your bends. Same with your sides. Also increase that bend depth and reps over time for real gains.
